Each year Firefighters across the nation take to the streets, including Firefighters from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) “Fill the Boot” events across the country to help kids and adults with muscular dystrophy live longer and grow stronger. 

On May 22-24, 2019, Los Angeles County Fire and Local 1014 will be engaging in a countywide Fill the Boot campaign. We will begin asking our members to volunteer their time to walk the streets and ask the residents of Los Angeles County to “Fill the Boot.” 

Over the past three years, LA County Fire alone has raised over $360,000 in support of MDA, through participation in our annual Fill the Boot campaign. We are the second-largest fundraiser in the state for the MDA—this year, we want to be #1!

With our collective strength, we are helping to free individuals and the families that love and care for those affected from the challenges of these devastating diseases that take away physical strength, independence, and possibly lives. MDA, with the support of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), is actively promoting the scientific breakthroughs that will drive progress and has produced results in this year and for the future.

MDA maintains a nationwide network or 200 clinics, six of which are located in the Greater Los Angeles District. Funds raised by our Firefighters each year go directly towards helping these kids get lifechanging medicines and therapy treatments. 

Every donation makes a difference!  

  • $75/minute – Spent on MDA research programs, supporting over 300 projects.
  • $3,500 – Cost to sponsor one child for camp
  • $500 – Cost to replace the batteries for a power wheelchair

For more information on how you can help, please contact Director Jason Cervantes.
